The minimum amount of equipment cost might be best for me right now but of course I want to get the best bang for my buck. I will go check out all the equipment you listed and will go pick up a manuel today at the gun shop.

Do you think I can get started on $300??? Looks like it is possible with the minimum stuff you listed.

I'd get a better press, as that will last you forever. The rest of the cheap kit will work great, throw in a powder trickler MidwayUSA - RCBS Powder Trickler
and you should be good to go.

You could add a cheap yet very functional powder measure MidwayUSA - Lee Perfect Powder Measure
instead of the little dippers. For a difference of less than $20

Hope this all helps,

AJ

ps: Where are you located, if you happened to be down the road here, I have some stuff I could loan out.

Nope, I'm in Michigan.

Feel free to post your shopping list once you go through all the options.

Got your PM..... Thanks for the info.. It is all starting to come together. I got a manual yesterday and have read all the steps to reloading. I now see the need for alot of the equipment and it makes more sense now. I will read the manual a couple more times and look again at the lists of supplies you gave me.

I hope to come up with a full list by the end of the day for review. I am ready to get some stuff ordered and on the way!

Okay just read this whole post I think I have a plan for you. First bring your .280 to me for a couple days. I will work you up a load and if you buy the brass and bullets I will load you as many as you need. You can start reloading in a year or two.
I have that sako that I got from James Jones here I will sell you for exactly what I have in it and I will even finish the stock for you first and throw in a SS 20x that I have gathering dust for free. You will need some brass for that I have plenty of bullets (I dont have dies but Tolar does) and we will work up a load and I will load you as many as you need.
Presto you are long range shooting for exactly 1K plus about 200 for rings bases and some brass and bullets. I will even give you my old range finder to use as long as you wish, if you dont have axcess to one, and help you work up some drop charts. I will even get the rings and mount everything for you and site it in.
That way yo have your .280 for normal hunting and then the .300 for busting those whitetails across thos big rye grass fields.
You know I am flexible on payments and even accept gobblecams as payment. (those are some awesom cams you build) Seriously you can get this gun scope and range finder plus reloads and all with no money down and you can just pay what you want when you want. You can even come down and shoot up my ammo in my guns while I reload your brass. Of course you may have to wait in line to shoot between telkev (scoofers boy who btw can use your prayers he is having hip surgery as I type this) and rbelote and matt and some other guys you probably know.

I feel guilty about taking you to that f-class match....errr what ya doing first Saturday in December they are having another one and you can shoot my 6x47 or my 6.5x47 and I will shoot my new 6x47. You can even use my Geraci built rest.
